These amazing Air Fryer Cookies are ready in about 10 minutes and are grain-free, sugar-free, and keto friendly! Enjoy 2 single serving cookies or one large deep-dish cookie for the perfect late night or after school snack.
Air Fryer Cookies
Keto Cookies are one of my all time favorites, but combine them with an Air Fryer and I am sold! These Air Fryer Cookies are made with your favorite peanut butter, golden monkfruit and sugar free salted caramel chocolate chips! These amazing cookies are gluten free, sugar free, grain free and keto!
Just like my Air Fryer Brownie, this dessert is done super quickly. In only 10 minutes you can enjoy a warm, fresh from the “oven” cookie! A great thing about using an Air Fryer is that it cooks everything beautifully but without warming up your house. I’ve set up this recipe so that you can make it two ways.
- Option 1 – Make yourself two generously sized cookies, 3.4 net carbs each. These are great for sharing with another person or making an extra to add to tomorrow’s lunch.
- Option 2 – Make yourself one big deep dish cookie, 7 net carbs total. This is the perfect recipe when you deserve a warm, gooey celebratory treat!
If you decide you’d like to make a big batch of these cookies, here’s the full recipe for these Keto Peanut Butter Cookies for the oven!
Ingredients for Cookies in Air Fryer
As always, here is a quick overview of the ingredients used in our Air Fryer Cookies. For the complete recipe, just scroll to the bottom of the page.
- Peanut butter- I recommend using a smooth peanut butter. If you are keto, make sure your peanut butter does not have any added sugar.
- Golden monk fruit sweetener– if you aren’t keto, brown sugar will work
- Egg yolk, baking powder, vanilla, salt
- Sugar free salted caramel chocolate chips– use any flavor of chocolate chip you prefer, but I love this type!
Can you make cookies in an Air Fryer?
Absolutely! These Air Fryer Cookies come together in just 3 easy steps!
- Preheat your Air Fryer to 300 degrees F for 3 minutes. Combine all of your ingredients in a bowl until thick and well mixed.
- For one large deep dish cookie, add all of the mixture to an oiled oven safe ramekin. For 2 smaller cookies, split the cookie dough into two ramekins. Press to cover the bottom of the ramekins to form your cookies.
- Cook until your cookies are browned on the top. This was 6 minutes for two smaller cookies or 10 minutes for one large cookie in my Air Fryer. Allow to cool for five minutes in the Air Fryer before enjoying.
Tips for the BEST gluten free cookies
- Be sure to oil or butter your ramekins– there’s nothing worse than when a dessert sticks to the container!
- If making two cookies, give your ramekins some space in the Air Fryer. You want there to be enough space for the hot air to easily circulate.
- Don’t skip letting the cookies cool in the Air Fryer! This gives the cookies time to firm up.
- Add toppings! Try Keto Caramel Sauce, Sugar Free Chocolate Ganache or more chocolate chips! A little Rebel ice cream is always a nice treat.
Can I freeze this keto cookie dough?
Absolutely! These keto cookies can be easily frozen so you can enjoy a batch at any time! Prepare your dough as instructed and scoop onto a baking sheet. Put the baking sheet into the freezer and let sit for 1-2 hours then put the keto cookie dough into a freezer bag. If you are preparing from frozen, just add 2-4 minutes to the cooking time. These cookies will stay fresh in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Can I make this air fryer cookie using allulose instead of monk fruit?
Yes, you can! Instead of 2 tablespoons of golden monk fruit, use 2.5 tablespoons of allulose. This resulted in a fluffier, lighter-colored cookie that took just a couple minutes longer to set than the monk fruit version.

- 2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons golden monk fruit (or brown sugar if not keto)
- 1 egg yolk
- 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
- 1-2 tablespoons Lily's sugar free salted caramel chocolate chips
- Preheat air fryer to 300 degrees for 3 minutes. In a bowl, combine all of your ingredients until a thick dough forms.
- For a large deep dish cookie (6.8 net carbs total), press this entire mixture into an oiled or buttered oven-safe ramekin. For 2 single-serving cookies (3.4 net carbs each), split the mixture in half and press into two oiled/buttered oven-safe ramekins.
- Cook cookie(s) until just browned on top and nearly set in the middle. For me, this was 6 minutes for single-serving cookies and 10 minutes for the deep dish cookie.
- Allow to sit for 5 minutes before serving. Top with sugar free ice cream and keto caramel sauce or sugar free chocolate ganache for a special cookie sundae!
